CARMIM is awarded once again in the DECANTER WORLD WINE AWARDS 2020 Competition, one of the most prestigious international wine contests, with the “BEST IN SHOW” award for its 2017 Monsaraz Reserva Red wine.
The search for the cultural identity emerging from Reguengos de Monsaraz region, for its uniqueness - the singularity of its people and the generosity its lands – brought CARMIM to launch a new range of wines. After Primitivo, Tarefa is the next in line. Inspired by a piece of local pottery that accompanied many of us in the homes of our childhoods, Tarefa (which literally translates to “task “) is a clay container used to store small quantities of traditional products, namely those resulting from winemaking activities offered by the typical grapes of the region. Generations have seen their homemade wines ferment in these containers, thus expressing the quality, typicality and identity of a unique nectar.
The tradition of ceramics in São Pedro do Corval dates back to prehistoric times, thanks to the existence of clay deposits with specific characteristics in this area of the Reguengos de Monsaraz Municipality, which have always motivated this activity.
Monsaraz Espumante arrived on the market with a renewed image. Following the rebranding of the Monsaraz line that started in May 2019, the 2017 harvest comes with a different bottle and a stylized label. We believe that this new image gives sobriety and distinction. The Monsaraz range, with its own identity associated with tradition, is one of the most representative brands in CARMIM's portfolio.
International Wine Competition “Mundus Vini 2020” where CARMIM, a reference in wine production in Alentejo, was distinguished with a gold medal for Monsaraz Gold Edition, Monsaraz Superior and Monsaraz Reserva red and silver medal for Monsaraz Touriga Nacional and Monsaraz Alicante Bouschet.
Four CARMIM wines were awarded with Gold Medals in the international wine competition Berlin Wine Trophy. In this event, more than 190 specialists tasted and classified 6,286 wines from 34 countries. According to the rules of the International Organization of Vine and Wine, only 30% of the total number of samples can be awarded. There are many wines with a high score that cannot receive medals. For this reason, all
medals received are very important.
Monsaraz DOC Red 2018, Reguengos Garrafeira dos Sócios 2014, Monsaraz Superior 2017 and Monsaraz Gold Edition 2017 were the awarded wines with Gold Medal in this competition that took place in Berlin and which follows the strict rules of the International Organization of Vine and Wine.
This important international achievement rewards, across borders, the work that has been developed at CARMIM. This recognition reflects CARMIM's commitment to the quality of its wines.
We are still at the beginning of the year and CARMIM wines are already winning international awards. Conde de Monsaraz wine was awarded the Gold medal in the Mundus Vini 2018 contest, which was held recently in Germany. At the same event, CARMIM was also awarded a silver medal in the wines Reguengos Garrafeira dos Sócios, Pátria Selection and Reguengos Reserva red. About 7,000 wines from more than 150 regions from around the world participated in this contest.
